(2005) A History of Violence

This film is pretty straightforward up until the credits roll. That’s when I realized there were major details that were left out and left somewhat open ended. It’s not a negative aspect in any way, Cronenberg leaves plenty of visual cues for the audience to form an opinion.

Awesome movie though, definitely just something that sucks you in as soon as the first bit of mystery and strangeness begins. It’s not even really playing in the same ballpark as other Cronenberg films in terms of just fucking weirdness and shit but nevertheless, his prints are all over it. The moments of violence are powerful and ultra graphic.

So yeah, pretty straightforward but also I also a little bit of wonderment for the subtleties. There’s also some nicely times comedic breaks sprinkled throughout, it’s just really enjoyable all around.

7.5/10
